Global Opportunities for NSW Businesses Breakfast Event

By Export Council of Australia · November 18, 2015

Australia has recently signed three free trade agreements with Japan, South Korea and China.  These agreements lower tariffs but still leave market entry questions unanswered for many businesses.

The challenge is how to capitalise on these market opportunities and broaden Australia’s export base.

Recent research including Australia’s International Business Survey (AIBS) and the Advancing Trade Development report, have identified that the case for trade development has never been stronger.

Now is the time for Australia to focus on building opportunities to diversify our export base.

Please join us to discuss the Global Business Opportunities for NSW companies as we deliver valuable insights into NSW international activity from the AIBS survey, and an economic panel on future trade and investment opportunities for NSW businesses moderated by Lisa McAuley, CEO - Export Council of Australia. Panelists include:

  • Paul Bloxham, Chief Economist- HSBC 
  • Divya Skene, Economist - Austrade
  • Cassandra Winzenried, Senior Economist - Efic

You will also hear from company case studies who will share their international business experience and the opportunities they have encountered.

At this breakfast event you will be able to discuss international market opportunities for NSW companies directly with NSW Trade & Investment commissioners:
